The state government had been putting efforts to bring up JNIMS to an institute of national level and expressed that he was impressed with the performance of the Institute. The government is trying, as a team work, to bring further development in the Institute. Informing that the Institute has no facility for plastic surgery as of now, he added that cases related to kidney transplant and cancer had been given priority.
The government is considering opening facilities of neurological surgery 24/7 and equipment worth of around Rs 10 crore are needed to be procured. Manpower of two doctors is needed and DPC for the same has been conducted, he informed. The state government could not add the required facilities at one go due to fund constraints. However, necessary facilities will be opened one after another on priority basis, he added.
